scarboro offered this warning. >> they better be careful. they have wandered in and followed the nra who has made horrible pr mistakes. republicans better be careful and think twice before they make their next move. >> alex wagner you heard me ask for a freeze frame of marco rubio's face when he got a challenge from a friend. and on a totally legitimate issue. >> i think it is ridiculous that members of our elect, members of our congress are hiding behind this theory that we haven't defined what an assault weapon is. a bush master weapon is an assault weapon. people in the military say those are the kinds of guns we use when we are fighting wars. >> i think it was interesting that david keeb de n defends it saying it has the ability to fire off a lot of rounds quicklism so it would be in convenient to ban it. can you imagine how long it would take to have to change magazine clips? >> my mission for these segments that we are doing is to get one truth straight in each segment. let's get it straight that what rubio said is wrong. that what the president is proposing would have changed the
ble[ bleep ] doing? >> the nra has the fight of the century. >> those are crazy people. >> it wasn't about the president's daughters. >> of course it was he mentioned the president's kids. that is so crazy. they are never going to get middle america and they are going to lose this debate. >> today the obama administration took it's campaign outside the white house. >> i know as well as anyone having written the first assault weapons ban that the industry will do whatever they can to get around it a and they will find a way. but it can get around it. but i also know we have to try. >> at the u.s. conference of mayors vice-president biden made the case for him limits on clips. >> the assailant had a 100 clip magazine. now had his weapon not jammed, got knows how many more people would have been killed. in newtown, some of those children were riddled with #11 bullet holes in a first grader. high-capacity magazines are our view are not worth the risk [ applause ] >> vice president biden then explained why this time is different. there are some who say why the most powerful voice in thi
ago, you have to be the farthest out there backing guns. show moderation, you get your nra badge ripped off you. agree to any rule on gun safety and you're marked as a traitor for life. today some of the top people in the republican party, the people to watch, marco rubio, rand paul, ted cruz, are right out in front in opposing president obama on gun safety. so what happened? why is the gop the party of guns over people? our guests are congresswoman carolyn mccarthy, a democrat of new york, and cynthia tucker, a pulitzer prize-winning columnist. thank you both for joining us. you have been in this fight for so long, congresswoman mccarthy. i have to ask you, is there something out there in the water that's changed or are we confronting the old power of the nra? >> well, certainly we are confronting them. we'll always be able to confront them, but this time is different, and i think that the american people are realizing on how radical they actually are. you know, when you see the polls, most people in america support what we're trying to do, even nra members, so that this time is
'm thomas roberts. topping our agenda. the power of the presidency versus the power of the nra. as the president is officially sworn in for his second term on sunday, his unstoppable campaign machine will relaunch with a new name, organizing for action and a new purpose. selling his second term agenda. the president's new gun control plan, one of the most ambitious that the nation has seen in decades. and vice president joe biden who will meet with the connecticut governor promised mayors across the country yesterday that the administration is in it to win it for this fight. >> there's some who say the most powerful voice in this debate belongs to the gun lobbies and those who demand the stop to these common sense approaches to save lives. i think they're wrong. high capacity magazines don't have a practical sporting purpose or hunting purpose. as one hunter told me. if you've got 12 rounds, you've got 12 rounds, it means you've already missed the deer 11 times, you should pack the sucker in at that point. you don't deserve to have a gun period you're that bad. >> as the obama
since nowtown, not without a fiekt from the nra and the gun lobby. our next guest lee fong, contributing writer for "the nation," and he is here with the latest on what gun manufacturers are doing. welcome back inside "the war room." >> thanks for having me. >> when i see these numbers on guns, it's astonishing how much this tragedy has changed these numbers. >> this tragedy was unique, one because it was so horrific, but two, we saw a lot of political leadership that we haven't seen in previous massacres. with the shooting in wisconsin we didn't see the president campaigning and top democrats calling for reform. that has changed this time. >> michael: something that has changed is the way that the nra is being side stepped now by the gun manufacturers themselves. tell us a little bit about how that is happening and how different that is? >> typically the big gun manufacturers have stayed in the sidelines largely. instead they funnel money and coordinate with idealogical groups. usually the nra to push a very hard line and push their public policy pref
is in the midst of a serious conversation about guns. the nra has been clear thought would meet any gun laws with serious resistance. >> they are getting the message out rncht president's kids more important than yours? why is he skeptical but putting armed security in schools when his kids are protected at their schools? >> jon: and why does he get to veto bills and command an army when we don't? all right so the conversation has started and we're off to a deplorable start. [ laughter ] i swear to you if i didn't know any better and i'm not a big conspiracy guy, i would think the nra is an elaborate after vant geard joaquin phoenix style joke or a false flag operation run by michael moore in an attempt to discredit responsible gun owners. your response, mr. president. >> i believe the second amendment guarantees an individual right to bear arms. i believe most gun owners agree we can respect the second amendment while keeping an irresponsible law breaking few from inflicting harm on a massive scale. >> jon: interesting open on his part. i thought he was going to say if you bring up my kids
the american people, including nra members, including gun owners, are saying we should be doing something. one of the things that we noticed, most people, nra members, gun owners, didn't know that everybody was not going through a background check. they didn't realize that 40% of gun owners are getting their guns without going through a background check. these are all law-abiding citizens when they go to buy their guns. why isn't everybody else? that's what we're fighting for, and the president is not trying to be a king. he's trying to save lives. >> we're getting a mixed message from the right, but here is the crazier talk. already there's pushback to the potential of new federal gun laws in the states highlighted on your screen. for example, state lawmakers in wyoming, texas, and tennessee proposed outlawing any enforcement of these laws. that's nullification, pre-civil war talk. and by the way, sheriffs in kentucky and oregon have said no to enforcing them. these are people saying i'm going to break the law by not enforcing federal government law. in mississippi the governor asked his stat
. everybody is for these things except the nra and the gun manufacturers. but who is fueling and funding the gun manufacturers? >> one big question congress may be looking at but bill de de blazio, the public advocate is ahead of these. he is on this case and joins us this morning on our news line. mr. public advocate, good to have you back on the show. >> hi, bill. >> hi, bill. thank for having me. >> we know that the nra -- right, is the lobby now nothing but the lobby for the gun manufacturers. who is behind the gun manufacturers? what have you found. >> who is behind the nra? the gun manufacturers. the nra has that chokehold on the political process and the legislative process in view of house they pointed that out. who is funding the gunfire industry? some of the biggest names in the financial industry. many of whom are based here in new york city or have offices here a couple of days ago, we went out in front of tiger management. but there are many others including black rock and big names that we found are very deeply invested in the guvenz and amm
senators rated "a" or "b" through the nra. throw the list up there. do you have it? throw it up there. it's coming. they tell me it's coming. harry reid one of them. "b." ten others received "a" by the nra. kimberly, if the people are getting "as" and "b"s by the nra do you think they will vote to change the constitution in the way president obama wants them to? >> kimberly: absolutely not. the nra poke the cage and super mad. this is all out war. they are not taking it sitting down. tremendous support. record number of people joining, giving money. look at the number of gun sales, ammunition sales. everything that is going on. thaw have this in their respect. if they want to hold on to the position, they have to tread carefully. >> bob: the same nra that used obama's children disgustingly. max baucus, i did his first campaign for the united states senate. he is from montana. i understand -- >> kimberly: did he win? >> bob: obviously, he wouldn't be up there. >> kimberly: you brought him in? >> bob: i did. that is not the point. baucus will vote against more than ten bullets in the clip.
on to the national rifle association. >> his office sent it to the nra? then less than a month after the oklahoma city bombing, on a day that had been proclaimed a national day of mourning for police killed in the line of duty, less than a month after the oklahoma city bombing, the nra took out a national newspaper ad defending a fund-raising letter that they had just sent which called federal law enforcement personnel jackbooted thugs. this is less than a month after the oklahoma city bombing. president george h.w. bush resigned his life membership in the nra in protest. ultimately, even after they first defended it, the nra was forced to apologize for the "jackbooted thugs" thing. and ultimately, old steve stockman did get voted out of office in texas in 1996. he'd only served one term in the house. but you know what happened to steve stockman in the long run? in this past election in 2012, the one we just had, steve stockman got voted back into office. texas decided to send him back. and then yeah, he was the guy who even before president obama said what he wanted to do on gun reform this week
, those demographics mirror the nra itself. the nra's board is 87% male and 93% white. the nra's wayne lapierrre keeps insisting his group is bipartisan but take a look at this. the overwhelming majority of congress members with an "a" rating from the nra are republicans. on the other end of the spectrum, the fs are almost entirely democrats. a little sliver of red there you can barely even see it. and of course, the funding follows accordingly. 97% of nra funds went to republican in the last election. but it seems like the nra is not only not representative of the full american demographic. but data suggests that it is out of step with the rest of the country as well. on this issue of gun safety. new polls show that the majority of americans support the president's gun safety proposals. new polls out today, 85% support closing the gun show loophole. 80% prevent people with mental illness from getting guns. 55% support a ban on semi-automatic weapons. when you look, interestingly just women, it is more dramatic. it is the same all the way down the list. more women than men support a feder
violence. >> now, some like the nra believe the president is giving license to doctors and nurses to inquire about guns. >> the idea that your doctor would ask you if you have firearms in your house as part of an examination of your health is repugnant because you have a right under the second amendment to own firearms legitimately. >> here now to sort it all out attorney and fox news anchor megyn kelly. so, if it's true that doctors and nurses are being directed by the federal government to make inquiries about guns in some cases that's troubling. >> it is. but it's not true. i mean, i'm surprise to hear the nra guy saying that. first of all, what president obama said was that the -- obama care does not prohibit the doctors from asking about guns. he was trying to clarify that it doesn't ban them from asking if they want to ask. but the nra should not be surprised at this because when they were passing obama care, the nra lobbied the lawmakers and harry reid of nevada made sure it got in to have a provision in there saying patients don't have to answer if they are asked by their
reporting, bob schieffer are running around comparing the nra to usama bin laden and adolf hitler. rush limbaugh on that. >> where is the media outrage at bob schieffer comparing obama gun initiative with the civil rights act of 1964. killing bin laden and then the hitler comparison? surely if we can defeat hitler we can wipe out in nra. i mean surely. why does the left get away with this. this is awe tenseably a journalist. >> eric: rush has a point. >> bob: he does not at all. people , a lot of people, including myself think they're thugs. they have intimidated people. if we can defeat the other people, the guys ought to be a piece of cake and they should be. >> eric: group of law-abiding citizens comparing it to bin laden and hitler. >> bob: not the nra membe membership. there are fine good people out there. the nra itself. the big nra building and inside that building are real thugs. >> eric: we dug up state bill 759. 5 # state senators voted yea to clamp down on the school shooters. one voted nee and one was present. barack obama in the present vote. >> andrea: voting present is th
for the president and taxes. after releasing a ridiculous ad going after the president's children, the nra is attacking again, this time via a fund-raising email, claiming the president is raising $20 million to jam his anti-gun agenda through congress and accuses the administration of trying to quote reduce your freedom to ashes. i warns of mandatory gun confiscation, and a forced buyback program. it sounds a lot like death panels, and the president is not acting alone. president obama is working alongside his rich gun hating friends in hollywood, and michael bloomberg. they fail to mention he is also the mayor of new york city. we're back after the break. arguments to feel confident in their positions. i want them to have the data and i want them to have the passion. but it's also about telling them, you're put on this planet for something more. i want this show to have an impact beyond just informing. an impact that gets people to take action themselves. as a human being, that's really important. this is not just a spectator sport.

in the nbc news/"wall street journal" about the nra. 41% think of them positively, 34% negative. hollywood think 23% favorable, 46% negatively. we talked before about lance armstrong and pr. clearly the nra has got a pr challenge here. how do you think they've done so far since newtown in positioning themselves to be strong in this fight? >> why are you looking at me, mark? >> i'm just starting with you randomly. i went alphabetical. >> yeah, the nra has had good days and bad days in this. and actually, that depends how you look at it. even when the nra has a bad day and the media is calling them too aggressive, that's a good day for the nra. that usually ends up working in their favor in terms of membership. but, you know, i think the politics of maligning the nra is probably not a strategically good idea. that poll, for example, showing the favorability numbers, gun sales have skyrocketed, there's been an urgency to vilify the nra. for example, there's an ad out right now, one of a dozen, maligning a congressman named john barrow, a democrat in georgia. it's a democrat-on-democrat sort o

a phone call to the nra's lobbying arm and you'll be greeted by this message. >> you're currently experiencing extremely high call volume due to the recent attacks on our second amendment rights. >> the president's proposed gun safety laws are in no way a gun grab or an infringement on the right to bare arms. regardless, the conservative right wing is insisting the president wants to get rid of the second amendment. >> let me be absolutely clear. like most americans, i believe the second amendment guarantees an individual right to bare arms. >> i actually think the president doesn't have the guts to admit it is not a believer in the second amendment, although he states that there is. >> there is a second amendment. the president and i support the second amendment. >> he is feeling right now high on his own power. i think it's really sad to see the president of the united states exploiting the murder of children and using it to push his own extreme anti-gun agenda. >> aside from the make-believer attack on the second amendment polls show america is ready for new gun legislation. a

at the centers for disease control. in 1996, the nra successfully lobbied congress to put this restriction into the cdc's budget: "none of the funds made available may be used to advocate or promote gun control." >> these were shots fired across the bow, and they terrorized the people at cdc. they terrorized researchers who said, "whoa! this is scary. i don't want my funding jeopardized." >> reporter: the nra was infuriated with a 1993 study sponsored by the cdc that concluded having a gun at home offered little protection but increased almost three-fold the risk of one family member shooting another. cdc funding into gun violence research has been plummeted 96% since 1996 to just $100,000 of last year's $5.6 billion cdc budget. is gun violence a legitimate public health issue? >> absolutely not. >> reporter: bob barr, a former georgia congressman, sits on the board of the nra. >> the issue of firearm violence is handled and ought to be handled as a law enforcement matter. we don't need the government involved in this. it is all about the big "c"-- "control." >> reporter: scott, the next s
gun sales to go through a background check has widespread support, even the majority of nra members liking the idea, but how would background checks be implemented on private sales? as peggy fox tells us, they're already required in several states where the seller and buyer simply meet at a licensed dealer and the dealer runs the check. >> reporter: virginia tech shooting survivor collin goddard has gone undercover at gun shows across the country to show how easy it is to buy high powered firearms without a background check. >> this is exactly the problem that we want to stop. >> we bought this gun just last year at a dale city gun show with no background check. >> reporter: omar samaha whose sister rima of killed at tech believes every gun sale needs a background check. >> two people can meet online go, into a parking lot and exchange cash for the gun. there's no record of the transaction and you're selling to whoever you want. >> reporter: background checks use the fbi's date base to prevent felons, domestic abusers, serious drug abusers or those dealed dangerously mentally ill
anything. what's your response? >> my response is the nra is trying to sell guns and they're going to continue to try to sell guns and they're going to try to use these situations to sell more guns. we need to know where they are. they're very disciplined in terms ever their messaging, but to expect anything other than buy more guns coming from the nra is actually at this point insane. we need to take a closer look at the president's directives and his executive orders. they make sense. they would address a situation like this. one thing that's interesting, karen, we haven't talked much about the militia groups and extremist groups and how they factor into the discussion around gun control but we don't have to go too far back into our history to look at things like church burnings or look at oklahoma city bombing, these groups and these kind of individuals can do a lot of destruction. it's race based and doesn't necessarily mean it's better or worse than something like newtown, but at the end of the day the reason we need comprehensive gun safety is to try to stave off attacks and
is the only republican we've heard actually come out and say how disgusting it is that the nra is using the president's children in a web ad that does two things -- list building and fund-raising. if we're going to talk about the use of children, i have not heard a single one take responsibility for that. i think overall the tone and the tenor of this conversation is going to be a big problem for the republicans because remember, we've got a number of battles coming up where the republicans are already on defense. when it comes to immigration reform, we know the opportunity for their rhetoric to get out of control is quite big. on this they're not talking about gun safety, reducing, you know, gun violence, and this kind of extreme rhetoric pulls them farther to the right. so if the leadership of this party doesn't get control, they're going to have to answer for the likes of rush limbaugh and some of those other whack jobs. >> you know, eugene, you have a united states senator from kentucky who is making comments about the president. you wonder how schooled he is on the constitution. an
. the issue is not going away. i'll talk to the connecticut senator who says this. >> the fact is that the nra does not represent gun owners anymore. this is not your father's nra. >> and the irepressible hoda cuteeb. >> we're giving alcohol on the show. >> this is "piers morgan tonight." >> good evening. we begin with the big breaking news tonight. if you love armstrong, this is the moment you spent years and millions of dollars trying to avoid. the minute you admit to the world, you cheated, you doped, and you cheated and you doped. it's a story for the seven-time tour de france winner that has been played out live in the spotlight as he tells his story to oprah winfrey. watching the interview is a sports columnist for usa today and also he wrote september's cover story, i still believe in lance armstrong. and page, a criminal defense and constitutional attorney. i'll also talk to a man who knows the toll of a different kind of cheating. former governor mark sanford is back and he's here. we begin with lance armstrong. i'm going to start with you. this breaks your heart. i remember when you
. 41% in our polls said they have a positive view of the nra. 34% a negative view. by comparison, hollywood and the entertainment industry has a net negative rating, 23/46. interestingly enough on the nra among gun owners the nra's positive rating is 62%. among nongun owners 25%. will the nra's numbers hold after their decision to run a web video invoking the president's daughters? we were in the field before they put that video up and that controversy sparked up but more attacks like this one from new jersey governor chris christie aren't likely to make the nra more popular. >> to talk about the president's children or any public officer's children who have not by their own choice but by requirement to have protection and to use that somehow to try to make a political point i think is reprehensible. you see that kind of ad and you cringe. you cringe. because it's just not appropriate. >> finally speaking of the nra on wednesday former obama spokesman robert gibbs said the obama campaign organization would be heard from again. >> the president has the most exciting campaign appar
